MotoMaster 750W Mobile Power Outlet and Inverter
Good Inverter On Sale
This is a good buy on sale, note that you will NOT get 750 all the time. Thats peak power. Also for higher wattage you need to use the included battery clamps, not the dc socket. I ran a bunch of stuff on it with my solar system and it works good, for 60 bucks on sale im happy as can be. Seems solid, just dont be hard on it. Also the fan runs 24/7 even without a load and is sort of loud, but otherwise seems to work fine.

Not Working To Specs
Bought the 750 did not power up best output 120 watt returned the unit bought a second one same result product is not preforming to spec. the supplier is not monitoring the quality on the production line. Volume only concern, no quality on output.
So common from products from the east!

Not Good For +3 AMP Devices
I puchased the previous 400 Watt & 800 Watt versions and they have worked well over the last 5 years. I puchased 5 of the newer 750 Watt for my company and they would even power up a laptop. It appear CT has changed suppliers and these don't even reach 102 VAC and can support anything over 3 amps, maybe thats why they don't list supported amps. CT needs to go back to the old supplier(s). I purchase 5 simular models from Bestbuy and they work just fine, cheap is good but they have to work.

Very good inverter, if wired properly
You can't wire this inverter thru a cigarette lighter outlet. You must use a minimum of 4 gauge wire directly wired to battery. Mine is wired this way, running 120V 400Watt food warmer for hours with 0% problems.
Cigarette lighters are wired thru fuse box with very thin wiring, resulting in voltage and current drop, inadequate for unit this size.
Anyone with a bit of electrical "know-how" would realize there is a good reason why this inverter has no "cigarette lighter" adapter.
Use a 4 gauge or thicker positive wire, good 4 gauge or thicker ground wire (keep ground wire short), and you'll have absolutely 0 problems.

Surge protection gone wrong???
I have been to canadian tire 6 times in the last week and I have to say I am extremely diappointed with their inverters. I have purchased 2 150 watt (2 AC / 2 USB) inverters, the 1000W pure sign inverter, and now just gotten fed up with my second unit of this model. My needs are not all that demanding, and honestly, I do have a fair idea about electricity, so why I am having so much bad luck is beyond me.
All I require is 1.6 Amp continuous draw for a laptop that takes little more than 75 watts.
The 2 150's that I had only supported 1.3 amp continous (realized on the second one) however that unit work perfect had it been powerful enough, my laptop is just a pig
the 1000 Watt pure sign came with no cigarette lighter adapter (Since I move truck to truck that is important), and now these units are shutting down the outlets as I plug a laptop in. It MAY work with one once in a while, but as soon as I plug in a second laptop (The two of which only use 100 watts together), the plugs all go dead. I am sure its not something I'm doing, I think the units are just kind of cheaply built..
NOTE, the fan is also noticable over the volume of fully cranked laptop speakers. If no noise is in the vehicle, the fan is quite noticable, if the radio is on it may drown it out.
Im going to try the 1000 watt pure one more time with self made cigarette adapters (If I cant just find any), and if that doesnt work I'm through with canadian tire for power inversions.
